Jane Gregory


Jane Gregory represents authors of crime, thrillers, psychological suspense, historical and literary fiction. She works closely on all editorial matters with Stephanie Glencross.

After thirty years of running her own literary agency, Jane, her team and all her authors were delighted to join the like-minded agents and colleagues at DHA in January 2018.

Before setting up as an agent, Jane was a Rights and Contracts Director for publishers. In the past, Jane has been on the Virago advisory panel; co-founded ‘Women in Publishing’; produced, directed and co-wrote several publishers’ pantomimes; and was a co-founder of The Women’s Prize for Fiction (previously Orange and Baileys Prize). She also co-founded, and is currently still on the committee of, the Theakston’s Old Peculier Crime Writing Festival, Harrogate. Jane is assisted by Camille Burns.
